“This multi-column abstract has a torn corner revealing brass facets. A healing hand cutout is backed with copper on one side, revealing a verdigris handprint. The base can be welded to steel plate base. The pan can then be filled with rock or plants.
When I was just a child my father placed a welding torch in my hand and the love of creating was birthed within my soul. I have designed and built home furnishings, restaurant decor and sculpted work in bronze as well as steel, wood and leather.
My work is shown and sold in galleries in Oklahoma, Texas, California and Oregon. Several of my pieces are installed well within the public view. My most recent commissioned piece is installed in South Lake Tahoe, Ca. Currently I have a sculpture on loan in Highlands Ranch, Colorado. My extensive travels throughout the U.S. has been a great inspiration to my work, providing the background for an authentic western flair in my art. I like creating art sculptures larger than life size to expand the viewers’ imagination on the relativity of scale and perspective.
My love of art continues to grow as well as my curiosity to try new mediums. I find my imagination is endless and ever evolving. Inspiration comes from EvErYwHeRe and EvErYtHiNg!” David Southerland
